This post has been wikified. If you would like to help edit it, please take the liberty of doing so. I plan on getting another one of these going for Gods of War and BioShock Infinite soon, although it seems nobody has anything exclusive, and if you can find an Ultimate Songbird edition or even a Premium edition, you're a lucky one. Regardless, let me know what you think. Thanks!

I want to go Best Buy for the 20 bucks, but I might have to go Microsoft store because Alex Brand is the best character and I can't argue with 1600 points. Then again I wont get the game day one. This is a hard one.

Only thing I can think of to add to the post is pictures of the characters. I tried to do it, but I'm afraid I'll mess up the post.

I'll be picking this one up at Best Buy, mainly due to the $20 certificate, Anyas a nice bonus but I'll probably just use Tai onlne anways, also a code for a digital copy of Gears of War 1 comes with all first print copies from anywhere, so you'll get that no matter what, not just at Walmart.

Im thinking about getting a copy from Walmart for the free Gears 3, and then also from Best Buy for the $20 GC and 2x rz points. Sell one of the copies and I'd be content.

Another is Amazon.es. Yes, they don't ship to the US and yes, it might be a region locked game, but there's a rare exclusive char that is likely region free

Pre Promotion: DLC code in Amazon.es ExCLUSIVE
Gears of War Reserve Judgement and receive free DLC code with which you can download to Sun, the best friend of Marcus Fenix ​​and "Hammerburst Classic", which was the rifle standard Army assault Locust.

Ever since the first Gears of War, I promised myself that I wouldn't buy the following installment on release, because I found each Gears title incredibly overrated, yet I still bought it. This time I'm not going through with it unless Amazon adds a $20 credit. These bonuses don't impress me. I'll wait until holiday 2013 sales otherwise.

Gears of War Canada is really good for our Canadian CAGs
Pre-order Bonuses

Sorry for all the posts, but i don't really understand the wiki thing. Anyone want to add my additions to it?

ok this is gonna be YMMV thing, but the microcenter ad i just got shows in the gaming section a picture of gears judgement and inset to that a 12mo xbox live card with a price of 39.99 overlay. perhaps someone could get a pricematch given the way the rest of the ads layout similar fashion the price over the game.

Based on how fast Gears 3 dropped in price, I may hold off on this one.

...unless I can get one of those $10 coupons at Best Buy to use on a preorder.

If you get it at ms store you $20 of ms points. Better than $10 especially if you want season pass since that would make it free. Plus free ship and alex brand and classic hammerburst.

I see this comment way too often. I'm not saying it won't happen, but Epic did it for one game, not "always." ...And technically you could argue they weren't the same. There's no reason for people to act like they know the future when they don't. If you HAVE to have a character, you better preorder, but don't be surprised if they offer it with a changed color scheme later.

BTW, why do we have individual threads now, instead of using this: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=297423 ?

If I get the coupon at Best Buy, that would be $10 off a preorder, plus the $20 Reward Zone credit, plus the 2X points. So basically $30 for the game plus the points.

As with every other Gears game, this will be $40 in 3 weeks and the $20 you save won't be tied to one store. If you have a backlog, just wait. Thanks to the OP for organizing the bonuses though.

60 day price match works well at best buy for me... Been getting a bunch of games that net for $0 or money maker after selling dlc, $20 rz, price matching, and selling game after I finish it.

Hell if you really wait you can get it probably for $10 in a year. I know Gears 3 dropped pretty fast.

I'm pre-ordering because this is the only big title I'm getting from March till about September and me and all my friends love Gears.

Nope, silver is still 60. I am surprised we get 4x the amount of time...

I still can't decide if I want to renew my gamer unlocked. I only plan on buying gears of war and NBA 2k14. Who knows if they'll even have an offer for nba 2k14 though... I still get the magazine though due to them screwing up my sign up

I know silver gets 60 days of return period, which is essentially a 60 day return/rebuy pricematch period. But this way you loose the $20 rz unless they issue it first, you use it, then do a return/rebuy.

Silver doesn't change until next month.

"Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 60 day post purchase price match to Best Buy's prices for purchases that occur on or before April 18, 2013. Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 15 day post purchase price match to Best Buy's prices for purchases that occur on or after April 19, 2013."

I am actually surprised they aren't changing the 60 day return policy. What's the point of only doing a 15 day price match if silver members can still return / rebuy...

But by then the trade in values would have tanked as well. This way I could play it for those 2 weeks and still trade it in and get most of my money back if I don't like it. However it depends on how much you like the game - for me Gears is a keeper since many friends play it.

In the long term, if you buy a lot of games, it still makes more sense to pre-order at places where you get money or a giftcard and then sell the game back after quickly beating it. In many cases it ends up not costing you anything or a couple of dollars at most. The downside is yes that your money is now tied up at a certain store but if you buy a lot of games then that's not a problem.

It seems to be Microsoft's strategy lately because they did the same thing with Halo 4 - that dropped to $40 a month or so after debuting. It's smart of them to do this and the only ones it really "hurts" are those of us who just want to pay the absolute minimum.
